How can one study in Canadian universities?

I am thinking of enrolling in an international student exchange program in Canada but I do not know how to apply for such programs. I live in the US and don’t have substantial knowledge about Canadian universities. I would appreciate if someone would guide me on the process of applying to a Canada university. Tell me about program requirements and everything that I need to consider so that I can have the best chance of being accepted in the best universities in Canada that accept student exchanges. Do I need a study visa, if so, how do I get one?

If you want to go to Canada for a global student exchange program, you will be required to write an application to a university in Canada, receive an admission letter and then apply for a study visa. Application process can be difficult for some people. You, however, do not need to worry. There is an application board that assists students from different countries to apply to universities in Canada and colleges. The Applyboard has a hundred percent free services. It helps you apply for suitable programs as well as apply for a study visa.

You can alternatively contact the universities of your interest and ask for a link to the department that deals with foreign students. You will be able to access all the details you require in regards to the student exchange program of interest. The department should provide you with information concerning work visa, housing, student visa and the cost of living in Canada. You will also find this information available when doing the application process. Entry into Canadian colleges involves high competition. I am therefore of the suggestion that you do at least two years in your local university and work hard to score at the range of ninety percent before making an application to a university in Canada. Having passed an IB, SAT or AP tests in will help in the application process.

To start this process, make a list of interesting universities. Most schools have similar processes of application. However, the requirements may be different. You will therefore need to check with the departments as mentioned above. Make sure not to passed by deadlines. You can make it easier by creating a profile at after that you can search schools in the search section and filter the search by Canadian schools. Browse through the list of schools and get a list of interesting Canada universities. After you have a list get in touch with the admission staff of each school via email or on phone. You need to prepare for English proficiency tests because it is likely you will come across one in the application process.

You also need to take IELTS prior to applying for any college in Canada. Universities have minimum band requirements in these IELTS exams. Once you get enough IELTS band you can make an application for admission in your university of interest. If you get an admission letter, it is time to apply for a visa.

I am not very sure if SATs, IBs or APs are requirements when applying for Canadian universities. However, I agree that English proficiency tests are a must. Having performed well in high school will improve your probability of getting admitted into a reputable Canada university. An average performer will, however, have fewer chances of enrolling in a top-notch program. Nonetheless, we have a variety of universities that will take students of average performance. Therefore, there’s at least a chance for everybody in Canadian colleges. However, where an IELTS band is required, a minimum of 6.0 bands will give you a chance of getting admitted. With a 7 or 6.5 band, then I can confidently tell you that it is enough for most Canadian universities. It is however recommended that you check with administration officials of these universities to be sure. If you don’t have a 6.5 and above, then stick to universities that look for 6.0 band students.
